I have a bachelor in Kinesiology and some education of Neuroscience from the master degree level. I am a full time weightlifting coach located in Montreal, Canada. I currently am the head coach of Club Les Géants de Montréal and I am involved in developing youth, junior and senior competitive lifters.

My passion for weightlifting is what got First Pull started. My aim is to promote Olympic Weightlifting and bring media exposure to this incredible sport.  This website is dedicated to good Olympic Weightlifting information which is available through thought provoking articles and interviews.

I have the firm belief that it is the ultimate platform to grow interest in this sport. First Pull is, to my knowledge, the only website dedicated to Olympic weightlifting from Montreal, Canada. I would also like to thank everybody who have offered their support.
